…in his latest performance of his shtick (using pretty numbers and graphs to tell people things that they already knew). In this case, Silver’s explaining that no, Waukesha County didn’t create 14,000 votes out of nowhere. Which you already knew, because you saw the press conference where this was already explained, complete with the Democratic canvassing board representative who signed off on it.
But it’s still a waste of time, because Silver’s usual customer base doesn’t want to hear it. They’ll much prefer to be told that their pretty shiny Quest Object was stolen away from them by the nasty Republicans, oh yes; that way they can still be right. Not being right is bad. And actually losing that election after they too-hastily declared victory makes them look foolish, which is worse.
So… no sale, Silver, I’m betting.
